time, the new international monetary fund director will be officially seated in washington. at 9:30 eastern, john edwards will be back in court on federal criminal charges let me tell you more about the new head of the imf, first woman to run the financial institution. she replaces dominique strauss-kahn who's under investigation right now for sexual assault charges in new york. she'll serve a five-year term as the imf's managing director and chairman. she used to be finance chairman in her native country, france. we'll see more of her in the days and weeks to come. have you heard about this? this 2-year-old falls out of a window, plummets ten stories. a woman on the ground reaches up and grabs her, saving the toddler's life. she's being called the most beautiful mother in china for

short. he was dressed in military fatigues. here's the taste of the message of what he had to say to his people. >> translator: how much time has just passed. how many days? ten days. it's incredible that i tell you i was there. you wouldn't believe, it's like a miracle but i have to be careful to the extreme with this recuperation. >> as we know the venezuelan president was in cuba for about a month where he underwent surgery to remove a cancerous tumor. his people said that he was going go back to venezuela in about six months. quite unexpected that he showed up much earlier than what we were told. >> some pressure because there had been discussions about how long he could be away from
venezuela and still be in charge. >> that's correct. the vice president has assumed the presidency right now. again, many questions about whether or not he'll be able to continue his rule there. >> you spent a lot of time to asia. what's the story with tiger airways. >> tiger airways is a low-coast carrier that serves southeast asia and australia, it's focusing on tiger airways australia, in march, the safety authority in australia had issued them a notice that the airline will be grounded for a week, that was last friday. that's when the grounded situation started. that was because they had concerns over what they're calling serious and imminent risk to air safety. that was back in march where these concerns had begun.
what's happening now, they're looking to extend this period of groundings of flights because of another situation that took place last month, when two pilots were flying curiously very low over melbourne airports. now they want to extend this period of grounding. many passengers are wondering whether if their flights are going to take off. >> we'll keep an eye on that. as you heard the charges against dominique strauss-kahn here in the united states seem to be losing steam, but then there's a new allegation -- an old allegation that's resurfacing in france. any word on the effect that' having? >> yes, if dominique strauss-kahn thought his legal troubles were perhaps on the way to be over it's not so much the case. a 32-year-old journalist in france is now going to be filing a criminal case, her lawyer's going be criminal case against
dominique strauss-kahn for a situation that took place about it a years ago. she's claiming that she was sexually assaulted by dominique strauss-kahn. and now, what the defense is going to be doing is filing this case and they're going to find out that there's going to be enough evidence to support her case. lot of people are wondering why now back then when she told her mother of this situation, her mother who worked for the social party had said, you know what, don't say anything right now. let's keep this you under wraps. when this blew up in new york, i think her mother said, okay, maybe you need to say something. interestingly enough, dominique strauss-kahn is planning to file a counterclaim against her. >> right. my guilty pleasure is that i right a lot of mystery novels. listen to this one. $11 billion in treasure found
under a temple in india. here's what they found, rubies, sapphires, emeralds, pearls, chunks of pure gold. hundreds of thousands of gold and silver coins. this is in a temple in india. who gets this stuff? >> you know, this is such a fascinating story. some reports are stating that this is going to be worth some $22 billion and they're also saying that the amount that this is worth is three times the size of the place where this was found. who gets it? apparently, they're saying that the temple gets to keep these treasures that are found. it's ironic, we're talking about a country where 37% of the population lives under the poverty line. you have to wonder, is that
fair? >> money goes a long way in india. >> thank you. all right, businessman special time. bacon, if you're a carnivore, you probably love it. your dog worships it. it's about to get more expensive. oh the humanity. we're asking christine romanman about it when we come back. discover customersl are getting five percent cashback bonus at the pump... and at many of the places their

before the election to do so. however, they're doing it two years early, two reasons, perhaps three reasons. number one, is the gains of republicans. ali, they're worried that the president may not be able to win re-election next year. this union represents 3.2 million people. lot of folks that could help the president win re-election. >> you following polling closely. the economy was the number one issue on people's minds, going into this presidential election the economy once again is going to be the number one issue on people's minds and that what republican candidates are going to be talking about today. >> you're right, ali. in fact, you schooled me a lot on that bus trip across the country. because you talked about that issue was a big issue. look at two republican

which of course is about a $1 per calorie. he had over 40,000 grams of sodium. >> all right, here's the thing that a lot of people don't know, joey chestnut is a famous. another famous name in hot dog eating, cob yashi. he wasn't allowed to compete. he held a separate hot dog eating side. what is this about? >> i mean, there's no shortage of controversy in the world of competitive eating. of course, kobayashi, last year rushed the stage at nathan's. was yesterday because his contract dispute prevented him from competing. this year, he held a simulcast. breaks the record. the organizers of nathan's are

one american. the lone fatality. all 16 crew members all survived. some swam to shore and alerted authorities to what had happened. there was bad weather in the area at the time. again the u.s. coast guard and mexican authorities are still trying to finding the eight people still missing. ali? >> let's talk about dominique strauss-kahn. it looks like the case against him here in new york is falling apart. meanwhile a new developing for him in france. >> yeah, his legal problems are far from over for dominique strauss-kahn. if he thought because the new york case was crumbling there are new cases against him. especially one new case, i should say, in france, a journalist through her lawyer has filed a criminal complaint against him for a situation that took place some eight years ago. she's accusing dominique
strauss-kahn of sexually assaulting her. now, people, are wondering whether or not -- wondering why it took this long to file this complaint. it goes back to the fact that her mother had advised not to file this complaint, because her mother was working for the socialist party that dominique strauss-kahn was working for as well. we'll have to wait and see if there's enough ed in this complaint to take this legal proceeding further. ali? >> thanks very much. the nation's debt ceiling here in the united states, it's not the sexiest story you'll hear today. it's probably the most important. lawmakers are trying to hammer out an agreement. if you miss one payment on one of your credit cards it can make the interest rates on your credit cards skyrocket. you could pay higher interest rates on car loans, student
